« Domino Design Code Injection - Part 2 |
On OOXML and ISO »
Domino's next version is under active development
and as much as I would like to share details I'm bound by an NDA. However
glimpsing into the future beyond the current version is something I can
do (to some extend). To understand where Domino is heading, you need to
be clear, that software is about people. Always has been, always will be.
A little story to illustrate: In the 70th and 80th IBM trained a lot of
IT experts in internal training programs only to "loose" them
to the open market soon after their training completed. Everybody thought
IBM should bond their trainees, until it became clear, that the "lost"
trainees turned out to be the most loyal customers.
So again "The
emperor sends out his knights"
to ensure the future success (OK, one
came back already). With our
experts in strategic
positions big things are in store
for Domino next++ (Could be Domino 9.0 or Domino 10.0).
The interest the DB/2 integration led
to some radical ideas around the storage engine and I'm exited to share
that Domino will support CouchDB
as storage engine. Since Damien did wonders to the @Formula engine, he
will do that again for the database. He will work with the soldiers in
the field to also provide seamless connectors to access local stores of
other messaging systems natively (so no more migration of your Outlook
or Thunderbird archives, just use them). The Domino web container
will be powered by the Zero
engine. Zero (together with Jazz)
is my favorite IBM project. Zero provides language environments running
LotusScript.0. Just imagine the possibilities: Writing Domino agents in
PHP, Execute an @Formula in Java without invoking the ORB. We have some
exiting possibilities coming up.
